(MB: t. 26; 1. 61'; b. 14'2"; dr. 5'3"; s. 10 k.)

Scandinavia (SP-3363), a motorboat built in 1916 by G. T. Taylor Marine Railway, Norfolk, Va., was purchased by the Navy on 5 October 1918 from Bie and Schiott, Baltimore, Md., and commissioned the same day.

Scandinavia was assigned to the Naval Overseas Transportation Service District Supervisor at Baltimore as a dispatch and pilot boat. She performed this duty until 15 May 1919 when she arrived at Norfolk for disposal. Scandinavia was decommissioned on 21 May 1919 and transferred to the Coast and Geodetic Survey the same day.
